AWS Academy – a bridge between academia and industry

You are preparing for a professional future in the exciting and innovative world of IT. But did you know that 68% of IT decision makers report a skills gap? Amazon Web Services is addressing that skills gap and preparing students to join the workforce. That’s where AWS Academy can help. We offer AWS authored courses that will help you become AWS Cloud literate and master the in-demand skills that hiring companies need most.

My advice to people leaving college is always the same:

Get AWS-Certified.

— David Linthicum, InfoWorld

We are an Active AWS Academy Member by Amazon. We are one of the only three AWS Academy Accredited schools in Northern Virginia.

Our courses are specifically designed to direct the students to dive into hands-on labs thereby shortening the learning curve. Each day the students will spend about 70% of the time on the Labs. Moreover, the students can use our facility to continue working in AWS until 9 PM, if they choose to do so. That being said, we know the value of AWS certifications and therefore will focus on the areas that enable the students to pass the exams since Amazon Web Services covers a vast area, and is continuously expanding.Our seasoned instructors have covered the full spectrum of Information Technology throughout their carriers and have obtained the highest rated AWS Certifications.

*Note: According to Amazon Training and Certification Guidelines there are no prerequisites for taking any of the course.

Our students are required to work through the launch hour, and we provide launch to maximize the lab time.
No prior experience Required.
